Technology-rich learning (Part II) From e-readers and iPads in kindergarten to students chatting via Skype, from teachers and students posting their own blogs to solving problems by creating applications -- technology is fueling our future.
In Part II of this special report, we examine student-centered teaching methods, such as the flipped classroom, and the efforts states, districts and schools are making to build the infrastructure needed to support technology-rich learning.
In case you missed it, Part I of this report, which was published Tuesday, looked at how technology is being used in schools and on some applications and websites, such as Skype, that frequent the modern classroom.
Also in this special report, we offer a collection of links to ASCD resources.
